Blackout in India?

International news agencies, including AFP, warned Tuesday they may be forced to suspend coverage of the Test cricket series between India and England to protest restrictions imposed by authorities.

The News Media Coalition, which represents a group of media organisations, "deplored" a decision by the Board of Cricket Control for India (BCCI) to bar photo agencies such as Getty Images and Action Images and urged it to rethink.

Any suspension would deprive millions of cricket fans of coverage of one of the most-eagerly anticipa-ted series of the year, which starts on Thursday.

"In our view, the BCCI's move will hit fans and cricket sponsors alike," said Andrew Moger.
